Day 196 – There’s a Diamond Buried in My Heart

There’s a diamond buried in my heart.
At first its glitter was used to distract me,
its pointed edge then used to cut me
and I let it happen since it felt so glamorous.

There’s a diamond buried in my heart.
When cutting no longer served it well
it began to pierce and burrow inside–
my skin was thin and too weak to fend it off.

There’s a diamond buried in my heart.
It smuggled itself in through a ring on my finger
to glide in my blood and flow up my arm
and find a delicate bed to nestle in.

There’s a diamond buried in my heart.
It stabbed me true and pierced me deep.
My heart cried out but had no choice
but to slowly grow around it, take it in.

There’s an intruder in my body now
but there’s also a treasure in my core.
Its worth is great yet it also has none–
a burden and a boon, it lives in me.
